UFC 156 Weigh-In Video and Results


UFC 156 combatants stepped on the scale in Las Vegas, Nevada, as part of the official weigh-in procedure ahead of tomorrow’s stacked fight card.

Frankie Edgar weighed-in at 144lbs for his Featherweight debut, while the champ Jose Aldo hit the scale at 145lbs even. Bantamweights Edwin Figueroa and Francisco Rivera were the only fighters to miss weight, but will get additional time to shake off the reamining pounds.

As expected, Alistair Overeem and Antonio Silva engaged in a heated staredown, promising us a great fight on Saturday night. If Overeem defeats Silva, he will become the number one contender for the UFC Heavyweight title, currently held by Cain Velasquez.

  • the reem is kind of fat

    • I need 10 grams of whatever you're smoking asap…

      • lol… i mean he isnt as hulk as he usually is. he must be on another kind of diet

        • maybe eating ponys now

          • Unicorns actually. They have a higher fat content left him a little chubbier, but now he's got magical ass kicking powers.

          • and a horn!!!

          • LOL!!!!!!!!!!

    • @mauromina…..I guess you haven't seen Tank abbott lately….

    • Ya i thought that too, def doesn't look as ripped as he usually does, he has to make do without the roids i guess. Here come the WEAKS lol. Just compare older pics to now and you'll see a big difference.

  • Well I was wrong Overeem hasn't loose weight, it is going to be a great fight.

  • this is it alistair(conan) vs bigfoot(edward in hansel and gretel)…. its gonna be funny how bifgfoot face lookslyk after the fight….

  • I'd be curious to know how much weight AO had to cut in order to make weight, because to look at him, it doesn't look like he cuts / cut much. He didn't look too lean or drawn out or as if he'd had any trouble out all, hitting 264. Heck, he didn't even take his pants or belt off or (even) empty his pockets and he was still a pound under. The man is a beast.

    Overeem Rd 1 TKO

  • How did Lil Nog get this fight

    • I agree. That match up makes absolutely no sense to me. I was thinking about it the other day…

      Rashad's top 3 at 205 and lil Nog's not even top 10. How does that work??

      • He's top 10 on a few different publications. Got a big win against Tito in his last fight.

        Plus the whole "he really wants it" angle.

      • i think rashad is ranked 6th after jones, hendo, gustaffsson, shogun, machida. if he doesnt fight anderson it will make sense if he fights glover

  • D

    Kimura missed weight. I hope he loses via keylock submission.

  • ^ And how does Rashad beating Lil Nog give Rashad a light heavyweight title shot?

  • Mc Call=handlebars! ;D

  • what did Reem said to Bigfoot? anyone know? kinda surprised that fight is not the co-main event.
